Christopher represents the songwriting, instrumentation, vocalization, and home studio meanderings of Christopher Cardillo. Born in 1975, in Queens, and raised on Long Island, Christopher started his musical career in the fourth grade with trumpet and guitar lessons. Always involved in one musical venture or another throughout his youth, he bought his first four track recorder (which he still owns and uses) at age seventeen. He has been making home recordings ever since. "My songs are created in a variety of different ways; sometmes, simple and straightforward, sometimes pieced together and complicated. My influences are diverse; from classic to modern rock and folk, jazz, rhythm and blues to classical. I process what I hear and see throughout my life and the songs are an excretion of this process. I'm searching for a childhood-like essence, and/or the sensation of pressing your entire being against a pillow the size of the sun." Christopher rarely plays live, and prefers to spend his time outdoors and with the few people who are dear to him.
